Ways to Contain Airborne Dust and Contaminants are Now Available

One effective way to improve air quality in manufacturing facilities is by controlling airborne contaminants and dust. Although all manufacturers may be aware that eliminating airborne contaminants and dusts in the workplace is their major responsibility, many are not in the know that doing so will not only keep workers safe from the dangers these harmful impurities can cause, but can also help increase worker productivity. In fact, studies on the impact of indoor air pollution on worker productivity showed a 4.2% increase in productivity when air pollution was reduced by 10 parts per billion (ppb). Poor indoor air quality, on the other hand, showed as many as six lost workdays per year for every ten employees.

Unlike in the past, plant owners can now choose from a variety of ways to contain airborne dust and contaminants. The type of manufacturing process a facility is involved in is not even an issue. Whether its manufacturing process involves chemicals, wood, paper, pharmaceutical products, food or metals, there is a dust collecting system that will fit its needs regardless of the available space it has, its layout and the amount of dust and contaminants generated.

The industrial ventilation systems of RoboVent are among the different types of dust and fume collection systems available that are designed to help a facility maintain good air quality. These ventilation systems are actually designed to address a wide variety of needs, such as abrasive blasting dust collection, aluminum dust collection, blast room dust collection, carbon black dust collection, cast iron grinding dust collection, chemical dust collection and filtration, fertilizer dust collection, fine grinding fiberglass dust collection and filtration, food processing dust collection, fumed silica dust collection, glass-making dust collection, and graphite dust collection.

The welding fume collector is one particular type of system that helps keep smoke out of welders’ breathing zone. In reality, though, this fume collector protects not only welders but all workers in the entire facility.
